In a stream first spotted by Dexerto, Asmongold explained that while he thinks the game is in a “terrible state”, that he thinks it has a “great foundation” too.
Going further into detail, he explained that “I think the New World developers, throughout the course of the month or so the game’s been live, have actually improved a massive amount of things that the player base has wanted to see.” He added that “not only have they improved those things, but they’ve also addressed them in an honest and candid way”.
He also praised the developers for communicating more with the player base than “every other MMO put together”. Although, he did point out that “Final Fantasy hasn’t needed to do that because there haven’t been bugs in its game every f**king day.”
Earlier in the year, Asmongold called the current state of New World “pathetic”, complaining particularly about the “boring” combat.
Asmongold is one of the most influential MMO streamers, with over 2million followers on Twitch. He is best known for streaming World Of Warcraft but he also recently switched to Final Fantasy 14 in the summer. Many believe his switch led to the game beating its concurrent player record on Steam earlier this year.
